Happening on Saturday April 14 through Sunday April 15, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival will bring together all of the good things in life, like local food, libations, and live music. The multi-day festival will take place at Scottsdale Civic Center Mall and our own Chef Chris Collins is teaming up with the folks from Phoenix Magazine for a special showcase featuring wines, beer, and spirits from across Arizona at the festival. Here are a few reasons to come out and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Scottsdale Culinary Festival with us this April.
Taste what local restaurants across the Arizona culinary scene are offering up, from barbecue and classic American-style noshes to European fare and Latin-inspired eats, a variety of cuisines will be available to sample.
Making its grand debut this year, Liquid Arizona, presented by Hensley Beverage Co., will showcase local wines, craft beer, and spirits from across the state of Arizona. Liquid Arizona will feature multiple beverage booths as well as tastings that will be focused exclusively on spirits from our state. There will even be a cocktail class called “Outside the Box” that will feature cocktail recipes from our restaurant. And don’t miss the seminar on shandies. The beer cocktails are a specialty at our sister-restaurant Twisted Grove Parlor + Bar.
A sort of throwback the 90s, the two day festival will see megahit headliners EVE 6 and Everclear on Saturday. Additionally, over 25 bands will perform across four stages throughout the weekend. All entertainment is included with a $12-$15 general admission ticket.
